a couple of things i want the public tknow they can do. first of all, because, you know, our local law enforcement, our first responders are being swamped, to the extent that everybody can be out there looking out for their neighbors, especially older folks, i think that's really important. if you've got a neighbor nearby and not sure how they handle a power outage, flooding, et cetera, go over and visit them, knock on their door. make sure that they're doing okay. that can make a big difference. the public can be the eyes and ears in terms of identifying unmet needs. second thing. the reason we're here is because the red cross knows what it's doing when it comes to emergency response, and so for people all across the country who have not been affected, now is the time to show the kind of generosity that makes america the greatest nation on earth and a good place to express that generosity is by contributing to the red cross. obviously, you can go on their website. the red cross knows what they're doing. they're in close contact with federal, state and local officials. they will ma
